The Pressure Cooker is like a magic wand. The Indian housewife often feels crippled without a pressure cooker. Often, we families relocating to other countries include the pressure cooker as the highest priority item on the packing list! This magic utensil is a steel pan, covered in an airtight way with a lid having a rubber gasket. On top of the lid, there is an opening that is sealed with a special stopper (commonly called as ‘weight’ or ‘whistle’) that retains steam inside the vessel for a while, allowing it to release slowly in a controlled and safe fashion.

In short, pressure cooker helps you to steam cook food in a quick and convenient way, using less fuel while retaining the nutrients and flavors. Also, it minimizes the use of multiple vessels and reduces your work.
